    Q:  What will V.44 do for me?
    A:  V.44's higher compression ratios mean that more data can be downloaded in the same amount of time. The most significant improvement will be noticed when you are browsing and searching the web, since HTML text files are highly compressible. For most users, data throughput will be increased by 20 to 50%.

    Q:  Why do I need or want V.92?
    A:  Although broadband connectivity (DSL, Cable, Satellite & Fixed Wireless) are all the rage right now, in reality, most people around the world only have access to analog phone lines. Dial-up modems will remain the primary means to get on the Internet for several years, so it is important to improve the user experience on this technology.

    Q:  What will Modem-on-Hold do for me?
    A:  Many households use the same phone line for both voice calls and Internet connectivity, so when the user is browsing the Internet, an incoming call cannot get through. Modem-on-Hold allows you to receive an incoming call and stay connected to the Internet. NOTE: Call-Waiting service from your phone company is required. It also works in reverse; you can initiate a voice call while connected and keep the modem connection.

    Q:  How much time will I have if I choose to take an incoming call?
    A:  Currently we have a 4 minute time period set. This may change periodically.

    Q:  Can I stay on the Internet and make a phone call?
    A:  Not always. As stated above, it depends on the features your modem manufacturer & the chipset vendor decide to include in the MOH application. The MOH application from BVRP & Conexant called Netwaiting (tm) does include this feature.
    Back to Top
    Q:  What services do I need to use MOH?
    A:  You must have Call Waiting service from your telephone company at a minimum. Optionally, for Caller ID on Call Waiting, you must have CID on Call Waiting (not just CID) service from the telco.

    Q:  Where can I get MOH software application for my V.92 modem?
    A:  I expect that most modem manufacturers will supply a Modem-on-Hold applet with the modem driver. Check with your modem manufacturer for details. Currently USRobotics, Agere (formerlly Lucent), and Conexant all should have made their MOH application available to the OEM & Retail outlets. If it is not included, first check your manufacturer's web site for an update that would include MOH. If you do not find it on the web site you could need to contact your manufacturer and demand that they provide it to you. For USRobotics modems you would contact USRobotics. For Agere (Lucent) & Conexant chipset based modems you would have to contact your Computer or Modem Manufacturer depending on who you obtained the modem from. Also remember that MOH is a new technology and the bugs are still being ironed out. I suggest checking your manufacturer's website once a month for any MOH application updates.
